Beautiful palace

Saw this from outside. Seems like a very nice place. Lots of food and little shops along the road. Beautiful palace but unable to go inside. Nice picture opportunity.

We were lucky to stay in the Trident hotel right opposite, so did not have far to walk for great views. The palace looks great from a variety of angles and in different light conditions. There is abundant bird life along the lakeside. the walkway along the front is often full of market stalls, food stalls, and you can get... More

From last few years this place has again become a point of attraction for foreign as well as Indian tourist. It has happened because the water has been cleaned and many local and foreign migratory birds have come this season. Do's- 1. Prefer to go early morning or around 5-6 pm in eve to avoid rush and enjoy natural beauty.... More

The location of this "pleasure" palace out in the middle of a man made lake is idyllic and my photos (not on this device, unfortunately) will paint the same picture: pretty. But even my guide was saddened by the pollution. In fact, he picked up trash as we walked around talking. Admirable! It's worth a look but just don't be... More

This is only worthy of a quick picture really. We visited late afternoon on our way back from a day out and would have been disappointed if we had for there on a special trip. It was lovely to see in the late afternoon sunshine but not worth spending any time there. Many hawkers and also a lot of rats... More

After your pics, walk doen the street to see camels. Get the man who writes your name on a grain of sand to do some work for you. Only Rs 50.

This is one of the must see place in Jaipur. It is around 10 km from the main city and you can see this place on the way to Amer fort.
